Step 3: Display your custom job column

Once you created the script and added your custom column to the configuration file $GUI_CONFDIR/customJobColumn.xml, you can display your new column in the Workload page.


  1. In the Workload tab, select Workload.
  2. Click the Settings icon and select Columns to see available columns.
    Important: For performance reasons, only select the new column for display for users who require it. This is because your custom script is run every time a user displays the Workload page if the new column is selected to be displayed.
  3. In the Column Setting edit view, click to select your new column in the Available Columns list and click the arrow to move the column to the Displayed Columns list
  4. Click Save.

    You should be able to see your new column displayed.

    If any errors occur, error messages are displayed at the top of the Workload page. If additional information is needed, look for the customJobColumn.xml keyword in $GUI_CONFDIR/../logs/host_name/messages.log.
